We offer two models of high efficiency hot water heat pumps, the Hydrotherm DYNAMIC/X8 260Ltr and the Aquatech RAPID/X6 210Ltr. Aquatech Solar Technologies is our main company and Hydrotherm is a brand of Aquatech. Both models maintain the same core components and heating capacity, the significant difference is the tank size. Even though the RAPID/X6 has 50L less storage capacity this is our most popular model as it is capable of servicing homes with up to six occupants. This is because the recovery sensor positions are lower in the tank, meaning less hot water needs to be drawn off before it will trigger the reheat cycle and therefore resulting in quicker recovery times.
The extra 50L DYNAMIC/X8 storage only impacts capacity if the system is limited to heating once a day on solar power. The attached spec sheet for both systems shows that the only difference in recommended capacity is if the system is run on solar timers. I would strongly discourage any homes with 3 or fewer permanent occupants from choosing the DYNAMIC/X8.
Heating capacity is a measure of a heat pumps peformance and is a critical specification for any purchaser to consider. This parameter will determine whether a system will suit a homes needs and how it is likely to perform under specific operating conditions. In standard mode, the DYNAMIC/X8 is capable of 740L daily hot water output and the RAPID/X6 is capable of 600L daily hot output.
Low Temperature Performance Rating:
Both models are Class-A rated for low-temperature heating performance. Low-temperature Class-A: Suitable for low ambient temperature operation without auxiliary boosting.
Low-temperature Class-B: Auxiliary boosting is required for low air temperature operation locations.
Low-temperature Class-C: Limited to operation at ambient air temperature greater than 10 degrees celsius.
Both models element rating is 1800W. Our element only kicks in if manually set by the user. The purpose of element mode is to ensure even under fault or maintenance the system will continue to provide hot water. Some brands utilise the element as a substitute for a poor performing product.
The DYNAMIC/X8 & RAPID/X6 have three in-built timers which can be used to fully utilise a Solar PV System. Using timers means you can limit heating times to daylight hours to synch with when your Solar PV is producing power. The storage tank and operating modes will ensure enough hot water throughout the day or night. Solar power fed back into the grid is only worth 8c/kwh, while power you purchase costs 24c/kw or more! So running the
DYNAMIC/X8 or RAPID/X6 on your Solar PV can lower costs by hundreds of dollars annually.
Our heat pumps use R290 which is 100% natural, containing no ozone-depleting substances. It also has zero global warming potential when compared to traditional R134a and R410a refrigerants.
The inner tank walls are constructed from 2.55mm high tensile steel sheeting, coated in Class X -0.33mg/mm2 vitreous enamel. These construction specifications are up to twice the thickness of competitors products, the advantage is you have a significantly more durable, long lasting inner tank.
The RAPID/X6 & DYNAMIC/X8 are eligible for all Federal and State Rebates that encourage the installation of low carbon, high efficiency hot water systems.
